  1. i am giving you all the info regarding my situation, at this moment i dnt even know where to start and what question should i be asking. so please bare with me. my post on reddit give you a info https://www.reddit.com/r/IRS/comments/5j3xhr/my_taxes_were_filed_wrongfully_for_past_3_years/?ref=share&ref_source=link i have read a thread here from which i concluded that i must inform on my income tax form whether i want to file separately, jointly or if got a kid so i can file as head of household( i dnt have kids) if i am married. SINGLE is not an option for a married person. in my situation is i am unemployed, and i think i can file married filing separately since my husband never visited US nor does he have any US based income??? i want to know if i can change my filing status after 3 years declaring my marital status as single? i read about amended return but can someone explain like i am five. obama care only started two years ago in 2014 and i received the benefit by declaring myself as single. what should do about this ? i am now enrolled in FAFSA , and since i filled my self as single i received the grant on that basis. i havent yet use this grand. https://www.reddit.com/r/financialaid/comments/5j4071/i_applied_for_aid_but_can_i_cancel_my_application/ if you need any more info on my situation to help me fix this issue do ask. as i am now in panic mode. and i dnt want my family or husband to feel what i am feeling at the moment. total helpless. i am frm a middle class family and have no criminal record either. i dnt want to ruin anything.
  2. So what had happened was: Immigrating husband entered on K-1 had one name Filed AOS with my last name thinking we could change his name based on marriage Mailed a letter to USCIS after getting NOA hard copies requesting name to be changed to the one on his visa (included copies of NOA's with letter) Three months later received an RFE for his EAD/AP for his name Sent another letter explaining and requested his name is reverted to the name on the visa and his GC case get updated too EAD/AP issued in name requested Applied for SSN A few weeks later, GC was issued!!! But then we saw that it was issued in the name we had on his petition (with my last name) Could not update SSN with GC because his name doesn't match Applied for FAFSA in old name (the one matching SSA) Rejected at the college because his GC name doesn't match his SSA or name on FAFSA Does anyone have any ideas for what to do next? We sent an expedite request based on financial loss and that request was expeditiously denied because it wasn't emergent enough. Should we contact a senator/congressional rep? I have tried calling FAFSA, and all they can say is to get the GC corrected. We have the I-90 submitted and 30 days in we have no biometric appointment, but we may have another five more months of waiting. He may need to take less classes than we had planned on him taking because the tuition is rather high. Should we submit another expedite request based on USCIS error? Thanks for any ideas! Oh, when I say he had one name, I mean that he only had one name and no first name. Believe me, everyone gets confused with it...
